The hazelnut tree which stands in the garden of this holiday home was laden with fruit and nuts covered the grass; squirrel Nutkin was nowhere in sight but he would certainly found that one advantage of living in this easily adaptable cottage. Ideal as either holiday home or for those wanting additional space with a large attached barn.
The house itself consists of one open planning living room downstairs with fitted units on your left. The kitchen is also equipped with built in oven, hob and extractor fan. The fireplace is original and awaiting a wood burning stove, if you want this to be an all year round home. This room is 35 m² so space for lounging and dining too. Off this room is a fitted bathroom with WC. Upstairs the bedrooms have been attractively presented. They have parquet flooring, built in wardrobes and exposed stone work under the old ceiling beams. There is a smart shower room up here so a wash room for each bedroom. The roof has recently been seen to and the septic tank conforms. This is a real “move in and unpack” type of property.
However, if you want a challenge, or have hobbies to consider, the attached barn is also included for you to play with. The land that comes with the property lies directly to the front of the house and could benefit from some screening from any passers by (very few!) or a bit of a makeover. However, at present it is all low maintenance.
The house is in a small hamlet situated in rolling countryside about 5 minutes drive from the large village of Chmapagne Mouton which ahs a bar, bakery and supermarket. The larger towns of Ruffec and Confolens are about twenty minutes away. Limoges is an hour away for its airport with international flights to the UK. ©
